10 Best Places To Retire Overseas In 2014
Aug. 27, 2014, Nashville, Tennessee: Live and Invest Overseas’ just-released 2014 Retire Overseas Index names the world’s top 21 places to retire overseas.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
Drum roll, please...
The top 10 places to retire overseas today, as reported in our just-released 2014 Retire Overseas Index, are:
#10: Istanbul, Turkey
#9: Panama City Beaches, Panama
#8: Abruzzo, Italy
#7: Medellin, Colombia
#6: Pau, France
#5: Dumaguete, Philippines
In addition to its welcoming, friendly, English-speaking people, Dumaguete boasts a warm, tropical climate and lots of opportunity for outdoor adventures, including world-class diving and snorkeling and whale and dolphin watching.
Dumaguete sits right along the ocean, with attractive beaches to the north and south of town. This is also a university city, meaning an abundance of inexpensive restaurants that cater to "starving" college students. Foreigners have the opportunity to make friends with educated professors and aspiring students, take classes, and enjoy cultural opportunities not typically found elsewhere in the Philippines, including theater, ballet, art shows, and libraries.
Medical and dental care are good, with a new hospital under construction and international-standard health care available in nearby Cebu.
More than 5,000 retirees, including many Americans, have decided to make Dumaguete their permanent home. The primary appeal for the would-be retiree is a super-low cost of living; a couple could retire here on as little as US$1,000 per month.
#4: Chiang Mai, Thailand
#3: George Town, Malaysia
#2: Cuenca, Ecuador
#1: Algarve, Portugal
